“Don’t Eat” Fish Consumption Warning

Yesterday, the state Department of Health announced a “Don’t Eat” fish consumption warning in regards to walleye fish captured between the Tappan Zee Bridge and the Rip Van Winkle Bridge in the Hudson River near Catskill. In addition, the department of health warns that residents not eat walleye fish caught near the Rondout Creek just below the Eddyville Dam. Testing revealed that walleye fish near these locations display increased amounts of polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs. These chemicals have been proven to be cancer causing in animals and are connected to serious health problems, causing harm to the reproductive system, the nervous system and the immune system. The state Department of Health recommends limiting walleye fish consumption to one meal per month.
